DC SMARTStart II – Reliable power for the toughest, most demanding applications
Signal Solutions is proud to represent some of the most innovative and trusted RF equipment suppliers worldwide. We are always looking for products that help our customers create the efficient, future-driven test environments. This is why we are excited to highlight a new advanced power distribution product from our partner APITech (API Technologies Corp.). APITech has announced the new DC SMARTStart II that provides secure, remote, and rapid reset of locked or overloaded equipment as well as on-the-fly reconfiguration of overload and short-circuit protection.
APITech has led the way in rugged, reliable power distribution for more than a decade, with deployments in critical applications like the next-generation FAA network of ground stations for air traffic control. APITech understands these applications and incorporates new capabilities not offered by others such as rapid overload reconfiguration.
APITech power distribution units (PDUs) enable reliable power for the toughest, most demanding applications. Size, weight, power, length of operation, weather, geography, mobility, access, and other factors are addressed with our range of PDUs, and can each be customized for unique mission-critical requirements.
Secure, remote, and rapid reset of locked or overloaded equipment
“Our DC SMARTStart customers employ critical communications and networking equipment that is often remotely deployed and can sometimes experience a lock-up or overload condition causing interruption of service. Some customers also require rapid deployment with different load types and a flexible overload configuration. The new DC SMARTStart II provides secure, remote, and rapid reset of locked or overloaded equipment as well as on-the-fly reconfiguration of overload and short-circuit protection. Our solution saves time and money and enables critical systems to be up and running with minimal interruption of service.”Scott Wolf, product line director for the RF2M US business at APITech.
APITech’s DC SMARTStart II packs a lot of power and unique features in a 1U configuration. The system includes flexible overload and short-circuit protection, an enhanced network interface with key security protocols, and high-power density with up to 10 kW capacity in a 1U rack-power distribution package. The system’s enhanced network interface card now includes SNMPV3, HTTPS, and SSH security protocols. It provides secure, remote and rapid reset of locked or overloaded equipment as well as on-the-fly reconfiguration of overload and short circuit protection.
